Pre-race routine:

Got up at 4:30, got dressed, ate a bagel thin with just a little butter. I drank some water and some Diet Mountain Dew, felt pretty good.
Event warmup:

Ran three laps around the parking lot and swam a couple laps.
  • 08m 58s
  • 400 meters
  • 02m 14s / 100 meters

I'm happy with the swim, just need to work on getting faster.
What would you do differently?:

I wanted to try diving in at the beginning, but really didn't want to lose my goggles, so I just jumped.
Transition 1
  • 01m 4s

Definitely happy with my time, I could maybe shave a few seconds, but I'll take it.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really
  • 46m 59s
  • 15 miles
  • 19.16 mile/hr

I'm really happy, my best bike so far. I felt a lot stronger than previous races.
What would you do differently?:

I probably could've gone a little harder, but I'm happy with my time.
Transition 2
  • 01m 14s

Again, about as fast as I can manage, not much I would change.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really
  • 24m 24s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 51s  min/mile

I really wanted to break 25 minutes and did, but I'm a little dubious that the course is short. I ran without looking at my pace, just went on effort, but I'm not sure I really ran as fast as it seems. I'll take it though.
What would you do differently?:

I probably could've gone harder on the first lap, but I'm happy.
Post race
Warm down:

Breathed hard, drank some water, walked around.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

speed work

Event comments:

Overall, a great race. Well-organized and great courses. I'm really happy with my time and with how the race was planned.
